The Application Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics® tutorial and demo app files pertinent to the electrical, structural, acoustics, fluid, heat, and chemical disciplines. You can use these examples as a starting point for your own simulation work by downloading the tutorial model or demo app file and its accompanying instructions.

Search for tutorials and apps relevant to your area of expertise via the Quick Search feature. Note that many of the examples featured here can also be accessed via the Application Libraries that are built into the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and available from the File menu.

Boundary Layer Meshing Tutorial Series new

Tutorials in this series deal with creating and manipulation of boundary layer meshes. In these tutorials you will learn how to set up a boundary layer mesh and modify the settings for an automatically created boundary layer mesh. For physics-controlled meshing a boundary layer mesh is ... Read More

Electromagnetic and Mechanical Analysis of an Interior Permanent Magnet Motor

The magnets in an Interior Permanent Magnet (IPM) motor are embedded in the rotor core, where they form narrow regions known as bridges. The thickness of the magnetic bridge is an important parameter to consider in design, both from the electromagnetic and the mechanical perspectives. As ... Read More

Walking Instability in a Washing Machine

Walking instability, due to non-uniform distribution of clothes, is a common problem in lightweight portable washing machines. This problem is more severe in horizontal-axis washing machines, which are more popular because of their high efficiency in spite of high manufacturing cost. ... Read More

Thermal Actuator Surrogate Model Application new

The Thermal Actuator Surrogate Model application demonstrates how to accelerate computation for multiphysics analysis using a surrogate model. A surrogate model is a simpler, usually computationally cheaper model, which is used to approximate the behavior of a more complex, and often ... Read More

Isoelectric Separation

This example applies the Electrophoretic Transport and Laminar Flow interfaces to model isoelectric separation in a free-flow electrophoresis device. A stream containing six different ionic species is shown to be divided into pure component streams by means of migrative transport in an ... Read More

Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Tuning Fork

This model computes the fundamental eigenfrequency and eigenmode for a tuning fork that is synchronized from SolidWorks via the LiveLink interface. The length of the fork is then optimized so that the tuning fork sounds the note A, 440 Hz. Read More

Cubic Autocatalysis: Exploring the Gray–Scott Model

A deceptively simple system of two species and two reactions, describing the autocatalytic conversion of a substance, is shown to display a surprisingly exotic behavior. Starting from a 0D CSTR description, a 2D reaction-diffusion problem is formulated showing rich patterns stemming from ... Read More

Hydrogen Diffusion in Metals

This model shows how to simulate the uptake and diffusion of hydrogen in a notched metal sample from an aqueous electrolyte. It uses the Transport in Solids interface to model both the concentration-driven and stress-driven diffusion in the solid domain. Read More

SEIR Model for the COVID-19 Epidemic

Tutorial example of a Erlang SEIR model for the epidemic of COVID-19. The model is validated against data from China, Sweden, and the US. Parametric estimation is done using the reported deaths over time. The tutorial investigates the impact of social distancing on the progress of the ... Read More

Shape Optimization of a Step Thrust Bearing

In this tutorial model, a step thrust bearing is shape optimized to maximize the bearing capacity. A step thrust bearing consists of a stepped bearing surface on which the end of the shaft rotates. The entire assembly is submerged in a lubricant. The shaft collar is assumed to be ... Read More
